Publisher's Summary

Everyone needs help occasionally - even supers with amazing powers - and Jim (aka Kid Sensation) is no exception. Having previously received aid from a young psychic named Rudi, Jim feels obligated to return to the favor and rescue her from the federal facility where she's being held.

But breaking into a top-secret, heavily-fortified government installation is never a walk in the park, especially when said installation has top-of-the-line security systems, trigger-happy guards, and its own team of formidable supers. It will take a bold and audacious plan to get Jim - and the friends who volunteer to help him - inside.

Unfortunately, breaking in is only half the problem (and the easy half, at that); they also have to break back out...

Sensation, book 2.5

Whoot, we finally get to see the Kid keep a promise that he made a loooong time ago early on in the series. It was most satisfying to finally see this cometo fruition, it was one I had been hoping to see, and since I have run through the entire KS series this was an excellent cherry on the top. This recalls events that comes early on in the series, so you might not want to read in until after the first two books just to be safe. You can read it as a stand alone, it works quite well as that in fact, but if you want to dive into the whole series (something I very much suggest that you do) then you want to wait just a little while. Hardman really keeps this fast paced, as it is a short story, and lets you see the Kid do some real thinking and planning before he pulls his job. You have to remember that his powers standout, and if he uses them he will be recognized, and this is a very covert op. So, he basically has to figure out how to save someone without using all of his abilities so that he isn't recognized. This makes for a smart fast paced series of events that all occur on a specific timeline. Can the Kid keep his promise?

Hardman really has nailed down the way to write a superhero story, and he keeps turning in some winning storylines. He really needs to option this as a film, it would rock anything DC made, and give Marvel a run for its money. Master narrator Mikael Naramore is all in, as he has been with this series since the beginning, his professional skills are par excellence and need no more to be said other than his work is always top shelf. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Great side story!

Just a short story tied into the Kid Sensation series, very well done, great narration worth the time and the listen. I enjoy this series and I think anyone who enjoys supers would enjoy as well.


This book provided at no cost for a fair and honest review.

Great in between

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Now that said I finished this book in one setting. It’s a good story while we wait for Kid to come back to earth. Their are a few references to this story throughout he other books and I am grateful for the chance to listen to this one. Despite the number of powers he has Kid just does not seem over powered.

Great short story!

This is a great addition to the series and fills in the details on a side story that is alluded to, but not told, in the full length books. It also provides a hint to a "secret" that isn't revealed fully until the fourth book. If you love the Kid Sensation series, don't miss this one!
